Ideal for counselors, pastors, hospital personnel, therapists, funeral directors, and all those who try to bring hope and comfort to others.
The Duality Cross has multiple messages:
†For people suffering from depression or going through a time of crisis, the Duality Cross is a visual reminder that, just as the total agony of the Crucifixion was replaced by the joy of the Resurrection, so too a person’s life can be transformed from misery to joy. On the cross or the coin, you can’t see the Risen Christ when looking at the Crucified Christ, just as people in despair can’t see another side to life and don’t believe that their situations can get better. The Christian message says that life can turn around, just as the cross and coin turns over to the side of hope and glory.
†The Duality Cross also symbolizes good and evil. The crucifixion of Jesus was the result of sin and evil; the resurrection was the result of God’s promise of eternal life to those who believe that good can triumph over evil.
†The Duality Cross demonstrates not only the triumph of the Resurrection over the Crucifixion, but also the historical transition of the meaning of the cross from being a symbol of hate, humiliation, suffering, and death to a symbol of love, life, redemption, and hope.
†Further, the Duality Cross carries the message that one shouldn’t despair over one’s difficulties but see them as preparation for a positive change; as the darkest hour just before dawn. Just as the crucifixion preceded the resurrection, God can use the suffering, difficulties, or challenges in our lives to bring about good.
†The Duality Cross also represents the dual nature of Christ: both human and divine. The human nature of Christ died upon his crucifixion, but the divine nature of God was manifested in the Resurrection. The Christian promise is that we can share in the divine nature of God through eternal life in Heaven.
